N5 House Tour

We had a fabulous time in Highbury last Saturday at our N5 House Tour.

This was a showstopper of a tour with over one hundred and twenty of our current and prospective clients attending. Both members of our Design Team and Build Team were thrilled to spend the day speaking with our guests about their projects. Our clients were very impressed with the amount of light that flooded the extension and the stunning polished concrete floor. 

Our next tour will take place in the New Year in SE5 on Saturday 10th February, so register your interest here today!

Planning Win in Lambeth

Our client in SW2 has an end of terrace property with a butterfly roof. They wanted to add an additional bedroom, cinema room and ground floor extension. We achieved this by getting planning approval for a Mansard shaped roof, first floor extension and a wraparound ground floor extension. The client has opted for large Velux’s and bi-folding doors on the rear to let a surplus amount of light into the new extension.

Record Breaking Planning Win!

We recently gained planning permission for a Loft Conversion in just three short days! Our Design Team are both astonished yet thrilled for our client in Haringey, who will be building a very unique loft design, way ahead of schedule.

Our designer and client agreed to opt for a design that would meet the Permitted Development guidance, thus reducing the planning application timeframe. Although there is no guarantee any application will be processed quickly, we were able to obtain a positive decision within 3 days of the validation.

The final proposal includes a spacious bedroom with an en- suite that takes full advantage of the depth of the property. The Velux windows at the front and a large open glazing at the rear make for a wonderfully light and open feeling. Three large windows on the rear facade offer near-frameless views onto the greenery beyond and draw natural light into the bedroom and down into the hall.

Landscape Design in Southwark

We have just completed this gorgeous landscape design for a client in Southwark.

The client wanted a romantic garden with cottage style boarders, as well as a lowered seating area. After seeing some initial mood boards, our client decided that a pond would be a lovely addition. With the pond placed towards the rear of the garden and the shed disguised through a cleverly choreographed layout of tall plants such as hollyhock, sweet pea and honey suckle, this garden has a magical, mystical feeling. Interesting design features include a delightful stepping stone path, hidden pockets and a deep seated area that looks up at the house, creating the perfect sun trap.

N10 House Tour, Round Two

We had a lovely day in Muswell Hill with over fifty five of our current and prospective clients.

This was our second House Tour at this stunning build in N10 and it was fantastic success. We had both members of Design Team and Build Team present to talk with our guests about their projects, with many of our clients bringing their lovely little ones who all enjoyed the colourful cupcakes! Everyone appreciated seeing this ground floor extension which boasts high ceilings (3.4m to be exact), large Bi-fold doors, Velux windows and a fabulous utility area and ground floor WC.

Planning Win in Bromley

The homeowner wanted to add an ambitions loft extension to their detached house located in the London Borough of Bromley. The loft will provide space for an additional master bedroom with an en-suite and a study at mezzanine level. The final design takes full advantage of the wonderful views, providing the perfect place to watch the sunrise and set against a serene golf course in the distance. The shape of the extension and position of the skylights have been strategically placed, so that the new habitable space in the loft always has access to natural day light all year-round.

Design Progress in Datchet

We started this kitchen design in Datchet earlier this month, and our client got a great taste of what their kitchen may look like. With the subtle coloured kitchen units and Spanish tiled splashback detailed in the drawings, all of the small details helped. These 3D projections gave our clients the chance to begin visualizing their dream kitchen, and we’re looking forward to developing the design and getting to a finished result.

Design Team Feature in Build It Magazine!

Build It Magazine have featured one of our stunning projects in their September issue.

The homeowner of this bright and modern extension in Lewisham Park really has utilised the additional space. They built an L-shaped kitchen, loft and completely renovated the whole property, transforming this 2 bed Victorian terrace into a magnificent three bed home with a beautiful garden and three bathrooms. In the dining space, three Velux windows flood the area with natural light and the bi-fold doors allow the homeowners to open the room up on sunny days. Three striking pendant lights hang over the dining area, creating a warm ambience in the evenings.

Good Homes Feature N16 Project

Our Stoke Newington project certainly has that wow-factor and it dazzled in the May edition of Good Homes! We carried out both the Design & Build Phase for this project in 2016, and the finished product is absolutely stunning.

The homeowner chose some fantastic features such as wide Bi-Fold doors combined with an all-glass roof, which floods the room with natural light. We opened up the entire ground floor, removing the wall that traditionally separates the living and kitchen area, creating a relaxing, airy and sociable space. The colourful kitchen tiles further compliment the overall look of the project.

Planning Success in Islington!

Our client’s on Regina Road wanted a spacious kitchen with the potential to have a large dining table for entertaining. Their ideal design was a simple traditional roof with a vast opening so that the new kitchen is flooded with natural light. We went through various design options before deciding with the client on an Apex roof with 7 Velux windows and large crittal doors. The planning process was smooth as neighbours in the surrounding area have had rear extensions approved, and we highlighted that on the application.

Another Win for Design Team

Our Design Team have had another great planning win this week.

To satisfy the guidelines from Merton Council, we set the proposed area back slightly from the existing rear of the property. It was important to both the client and the council that this extension was in keeping with the local area and was designed so that it would match the existing elements of the property. Our client is delighted with the results and is excited to get started on the next phase of the project.
